OUR STRENGTHS & SKILLS
Spiral Q uses art-making, organizing and our unique inquiry-based methodology to model and teach practical skills in collaboration, community organizing, advocacy and identifying and mobilizing shared resources. We see creative action as a catalyst. We can produce works for you, in collaboration with you, or consult with and train your team to create their own.
With our wide array of skills, Spiral Q artists work with partners to identify how we might strengthen their plans. We take on long-term projects with multiple partners, as well as smaller one-off services and everything in between. Call Spiral Q to set up an assessment, or hire us, today.
TEACHING & TRAINING
Working with folks of all ages to build skills, expand knowledge, and create art, Spiral Q artists come with a variety of backgrounds providing trainings in educational practices, art- and media-making, including but not limited to sculpture, movement and dance, printmaking, sound, theater, and poetry. We can create curricula to fit your needs, or put on one of our signature workshops.
Facilitating inclusive dialogues and leading collaborative and equitable planning processes, Spiral Q creates spaces for powerful collaboration and meaningful action. We believe that the process of dialogue can lead to exciting discoveries, particularly when we listen to learn, and learn to listen.
PLANNING & DESIGN
Needs assessment, vision-questing, strategy development. Spiral Q helps folks clarify objectives, develop creative communication and engagement strategies, design projects and tailor curriculum to advance our community partners’ goals.
